Fun with gels- Week 2, Day 1

We’re back and continuing the series we started last week. I realized something after I posted the images last week. I have to edit my headshots with a higher degree of scrutiny if I want them to look as polished as my full lenght portraits.

I started out doing headshots and left them behind for awhile. I know the level to which I used to edit my older shots and I told myself it was no longer necessary. For full-length shots, that’s absolutely true.

For these shots I’m going to show you this week, there has been quite a lot of time put into editing. More so than even last week’s shots.

Anyway… enjoy! πŸ™‚

Another Friday! These are always welcome here! :-)

It’s amazing what golden-hour light can do to a subject! It’s fleeting. It can be overpowering. It can be intimidating to work with. With all the things that can go wrong with this very limited window of amazing light, so many things can go unpredictably right. I did not imagine any of these shots would come out this way. I had already successfully shot golden hour photos in the past. With those photos, I had a kind of vision in mind and when we attempted it, the results were mostly what we’d thought they would be.

In this instance however, I had no idea how the shots would come out and I really disliked the idea of shooting in such an overpowering light scenario this day. Fortunately, we did the shoot anyway. We ended up coming away with something magical!Β  I also learned something about different ways to light people.

I say all this to say that if you have room for it, allow your creativity to run rampant once in awhile. Have fun creating and collaborating. You’ll surprise yourself sometimes. Sometimes things won’t go your way and that’ll be disappointing but, other times you get shots that feel like once-in-a-lifetime shots. It is incredibly difficult to replicate golden-hour shots because the sun needs to be at a position that it’s in only one time per year and if you have any precipitation that day or cloud cover…..well, you don’t get your shots.

I may go more into that but, that will definitely be another post at another time in the future. Anyway.. go enjoy your well-deserved weekend off if you happen to be off on the weekends!!

Wednesday. Time to think on it, maybe.

Halfway through the work week. It may be time to just pause and contemplate for a second or maybe take a breather. A lot of time we forget to stop and remember the good things we have going on for us. It’s times like this that I’m grateful for having photography as a creative outlet. It helps me focus and realign my energy in ways that are useful to me. It also allow me to put energy into something outside of myself and get that much needed separation from other things I may have going on my life.

What kinds of creative outlets do my followers and visitors have? I’d like to hear about it in the comments πŸ™‚
